The couch

Our couch is pretty magical. As you can barely see in this picture, it is green. We bought it second hand at the local Goodwill on Katie's birthday when we first moved here. It was the only present she got that day. Poor Katie. Don't worry -- we celebrated her birthday a few weeks later.

The reason I say our couch is magical is because I found a lot of magical things in it. These things belonged to the couch's previous owner, and I think they are pretty telling of that owner's personality. Here is an incomplete list of the things I pulled out of the couch:

  • A drum stick. Not like a chicken leg, but the wooden stick you hit a drum with.
  • An English 202 midterm exam. He got a 57%. Sad day for him. I know it's a "him" and not a "her" because his name was on the exam. But I won't tell you his name -- that would be a FERPA violation...I think. I felt kind of bad for him because his answers really were pretty terrible.
  • 3 saltine crackers. Intact. I think the fact that they were intact is what amazed me the most.
  • 14 cents (dime, penny, penny, penny, penny).
  • 3 ballpoint pens. All of them were out of ink.
I know there were some more random things we found in there, but they aren't coming to mind.

I'll bet the optometry exams that get lost in the couch in the coming months will have MUCH higher scores.

Neat couch. The thing that surprises me the most is that Katie has the crafty blog...and yet this is the first glimpse I think I've seen of your actual house. Love the wall...who stole the stop sign?

HEY! I painted a picture that is hanging on your wall! Wow! I am super excited and flattered I can't stop using exclamation points! No one has ever hung up a picture that I painted except my mom! I am so thrilled it made the move! I refuse to believe that it had anything to do with the fact that it is a nice frame.
